Release Beernet 0.9 and departure presentation


Today is my last day at work at UCLouvain, and to celebrate it I am doing my last presentation about Beernet at the university as part of the ICTEAM Young Researchers' Day. This is also a good opportunity to do a new release including the last features of storing data items using secrets to protect against updates. But fear not! I am leaving the university but I will on developing Beernet.

Back to Antwerpen


Thanks to a new invitation from Enzo De Florio, we gave a new presentation at the Univeristy of Antwerp, on March 14. The talk was about The Relaxed Approach for the Greater Good of Functionality and Elasticity



Once again we attended FOSDEM. It was nice to see how scalable systems are getting more and more interest from the community. There was a main track dedicated to Cloud Computing, and a devroom dedicated to data analysis. We also discussed many of the ideas of the Transreal Initiative getting interesting feedback from other developers.
